Halloween Again

As I print 14 gun kits for a customer I find myself with some spare time...and it's Halloween soon.

I've been using my pneumatically operated skeleton/coffin combo for a few years now:

This year I got a cheap posable skeleton and I've a few ideas to try out. Test number 1: Skeleton swinging on gallows in (motor assisted) breeze. The motor is from one of the 10p hoppers we use for payout at work. It has a high reduction ration and loads of torque.

I've just completed a special build of my Milestag sensor domes for a customer. This unit incorporates 3 sensor domes for cap mounting with the rear facing unit housing the distribution PCB and coiled cable connector:

As usual, mountings are RepRap and the acrylic domes home baked.
